10 - M. Bison
The Psycho Power wielder wished he would become a dictator - controlling the world's governments trough his crime syndicate known as "Shadowloo" or "Shadowlaw".
He is the main antagonist of the Street Fighter series and is the villain that comes to mind when you think about fighting titles. Many of the street fighter characters have a personal vendetta motive against M. Bison, and he fuels the rage of many
9 - Zombies
Those decayed and half eaten walking corpses have paved the way to number 9 because of the weight they have in the video game industry.
Think about all the great gaming titles which have zombies as the villains. Zombies have motivated the creation of numerous games and movies and have a special place in all our hearts as a common fear humanity has. This is why they deserve to be here on this list.
8 - Ganondorf
Also known as Ganon, he quested to possess the triforce to wield its magical powers in the Legend Of Zelda series.
This villain accompanied the childhood of many. King of Darkness and the main antagonist to Link, he became a legend of Nintendo, making his appearance in other game titles like Super Smash Bros.
7 - Arthas
Arthas began as a great and promising Paladin in the Warcraft III game... However, he fell to the dark side and became one of the most powerful evil powers Azeroth ever witnessed.
This hero and later epic villain belongs to the Warcraft saga. He killed his own mentor and Father, he became Lich King, he died at the hands of his father's spirit. His legendary sword was Frostmourne. You should read about him, its a good story.
6 - Kerrigan
The Starcraft series Villain. Sarah Kerrigan is the self-proclaimed Queen of Blades.
She is a 26 year old trained to be a ghost assassin - however she got captured by the Zergs and infected, becoming an Human-Zerg Hybrid totally controlled by Overmind.
As a good villain, she plans to take over the galaxy.
5 - Carmen Sandiego
The villain of our childhoods! Remember travelling from country to country seeking for her henchmen and leads, progressing case to case up till we find her? Ah the memories!
So many times we thought "this could be it! now we got her" only to find out we got the wrong guy! It was awesome! She was an ACME agent that got into V.I.L.E. and you as an agent dream of capturing her.
This educational game is the proof you can learn having fun. I did!
4 - Diablo
Diablo, the Lord of Terror, is the evil incarnate on the Diablo series. He motivated players all around the world to spend millions of hours to thwart his plans to dominate all life.
Even though the Diablo series has its own world, many people make the comparison to ours. Diablo is very similar to the devil himself and Diablo's world is much like ours was in the middle ages.
Recently, Diablo 3 made him look weak, as Koreans passed the game only a few hours after it came out.
3 - Dr. Robotnik
Ok, call me a nostalgic guy, but I have to honor the villains as they take space in my memory and for me, this guy is a legend.
QI of 300 and wanted to kidnap all the cute animals of Sonic the Hedgehog's world, he would taunt you with all his evil contraptions and different ill intended space ships.
Just bounce on him 3 times and you are done :D
2 - Bowser
The king of all Koopas... BOWSER!
Leader of the criminal organization - The Koopa Troop - he is fond of only one thing: Kidnapping Princess Peach! The reason he does this intrigues you? Well, according to Nintendo, princess peach is Bowsers true love, so he only wants her to like him and not Mario. Poor Bowser, he does it for love. Mario loves Peach too, so he gladly ventures to save her, going through lots of dangers only to get a kiss on the cheek :)
1 - Sephiroth
The Legendary SOLDIER member that became a fallen angel, Sephiroth is the word that comes to mind when we think about villains and there is a reason for it. His story was intriguing, flawless and pretty much awesome.
The most known hero of the Final Fantasy sagaas and Sephiroth's Rival and former pupil Cloud Strife hasn't got half the fans this villain is.
Come on, you already knew this was going to be number 1.
What is your favorite?
What is your choice?
Did I Forget Someone Important?
If you really love a villain and you think he or she deserves a spot in this Top 10 Villains List, then please let me know down there in the comments section.
I will try to answer to everyone and I definitely am interested in knowing your opinion - it is only fair now that you already know mine!
There are countless villains I love and didn't include though, and I even thought about writing a whole chapter of honorary mentions, but I discovered there are just too much of them for me to include in an article.
Perhaps I should write a Top 100 Villains List one of these days, that would definitely be insanely fun, though by number 100 I could be writing about Pinky and Mr. Brain.
